Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/30/19


3 Up

1. Brooklyn Nets - It's safe to say the Nets had a tremendous week. They landed pretty much a great haul to put them in position to make a deep playoff run next season, but they managed to do something they've been trying to do since arriving in Brooklyn, put the Knicks on the ropes, and the City on notice.

2. Adrian Wojnarowski - I honestly don't trust anything else from any other basketball "reporter". Everything leading up to NBA free agency was simply rumors and random dribble that began with "Sources tell me" from everyone else. Woj stayed quiet and then dropped countless Woj Bombs on us on Sunday evening. Kudos to him who works tirelessly.

3. Meghan Rapinoe - Rapinoe is so bad ass. Not only did she defy the White House with a pretty cool fashion, she dropped two big goals on France to get the United States into the World Cup semi-finals.

3 Down

1. Dems 2020 - What a disaster these debates were. Absolute disaster. Why are some of these people even running? Who are their campaign managers telling them they have a shot? It's so hard to watch, and really, even more so because I don't doubt Trump will win another election.

2. Kamala "Not Black Enough" - It's amazing that this was a narrative that was out there and also retweeted and approved by Donald Trump Jr. Can you imagine the gaul of some white Americans - especially those in office - to pass judgement on the "blackness" of an individual? And Trump Jr of all people hopped aboard.  Is there anything this guy does that isn't an instant eye roll?

3. New York Knicks - Ugh. I rather not...Just read my latest Knicks rant HERE.

1 Ridiculous

1. Alabama - If you didn't think Alabama could get anymore ridiculous in their law making and law enforcement, take a look at THIS.

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"
